    Carnation Breakfast Essentials introduced two new flavors of nutritional drinks that take their inspiration from some of the most beloved Girl Scout Cookies. The Carnation Breakfast Essentials Girl Scout Thin Mints and Carnation Breakfast Essentials Girl Scout Coconut Caramel Flavored Nutritional Drinks are now available, and they contain 10 grams of protein and 21 vitamins and minerals. These gluten-free breakfast drinks provide a tasty and convenient way for families to enjoy the flavors of Girl Scout Cookies and get a healthy start to their day.

    “We understand parents want to provide breakfast and snack options that spark their kids’ tastebuds while serving up protein and essential vitamins and minerals. That’s why we’re proud to align with Girl Scouts of the USA through this new licensing arrangement to offer families Carnation Breakfast Essentials nutritional drinks inspired by some of the most iconic Girl Scout Cookie flavors,” said Mohini Joshi, Vice President of Brand Marketing, Nestlé Health Science USA. “We are committed to providing families products that continue to delight through taste and nutrition.”

    Carnation Breakfast Essentials Nutritional Drinks are rich in protein and provide 21 vitamins and minerals to help meet daily nutritional needs. Nutritionally appropriate for kids ages 4 years and older, teens, and adults, each 8 fl oz. bottle of a Carnation Breakfast Essentials Nutritional Drink helps:

    • Build Strong Bones with Calcium and Vitamin D: 300 mg or 25 percent of the Daily Value of Calcium, which is twice the calcium of a 5.3 oz cup of Greek yogurt, and 10 mcg (400 IU) or 50 percent of the Daily Value of Vitamin D, which is triple the Vitamin D of an 8 fl oz glass of milk.1
    • Support Growing Muscles with Protein: 10 grams of protein, as much protein as 1½ large eggs.
